A Frenchman was once told to put the colors "red, green, pink and yellow" in a sentence.
He thinks for a moment, then says :After I red the newspaper, I hear "green, green". I pink up the phone and say "yellow ?".

Makes perfect sense to me, he expects four people to attend a dinner at a Japanese restaurant one evening, after the awards ceremony.
The menu will consist of bear miting toumoro, a little known meat version of tempura.

as for enjoying [company name], we shall propose to have a beer meeting tomorrow evening after work and maybe why not want to eat in a restaurant afterwards. Please tell your availability and eventually
any idea to improve the process!
Sounds better no? even though wrong and bad English at its best.

Well, being a (non-native) Francophone, I understood it completely, but really...if you're going to try and speak English, at least make an effort to read occasionally, or take a grammar class so you can at least spell somewhat correctly.
